An entertaining quickie romantic comedy with a creepy element. A precocious teenager (Judy Clark) sets bait for her older sister's boyfriend (Roger Pryor), and lands him. Frank Jenks, as an unsuccessful house burglar, throws everything into confusion. The creepy element is the uncharismatic Pryor is too old for his role, giving this one the uncomfortable feel of a cradle-robbing. Judy Clark is appealing as the fast-talking teenage girl. However her dialog is seriously over-written, and at times a bit too worldly for her character to be believable. Nevertheless she is fun, and so is this movie. I definitely will watch it again. The print is in okay shape, but a little under three minutes are missing. CAST NOTE: Who is Judy Clark? She appeared in twenty-seven film and TV productions (many of them from PRC, and likely to be PD), yet I could find no biographical data on her. If you have any, please post it or a link to the info in the Feature Films Forum. Thanks.
